Affiliate Join Page Linkcodes

The NATSCode is the special part of a URL that NATS uses to credit an affiliate and record statistics. The NATSCode is different for each affiliate, program, site, and adtool. To get the NATSCode, start with an affiliate's linkcode. For example:

http://example.com/track/MS4yLjEuNS4wLjAuMC4w

The NATSCode is the arbitrary string that follows track/ -- MS4yLjEuNS4wLjAuMC4w in this case. The NATSCode won't always be at the end of a URL. For example:

http://example.com/track/MS4yLjEuNS4wLjAuMC4w/join

The NATSCode doesn't include /join. The NATSCode also doesn't always follow track. For example:

http://example.com/signup/signup.php?nats=MS4yLjEuMS4wLjAuMC4w

In most NATS URLs, the NATSCode is easy to identify because it's the only word that doesn't resemble English.
